In the shop of the famous pickups manufacturer Seymour Duncan, we can find guitar accessories such as pickup covers, potentiometers, and even straps. But we can also see single coil pickup necklaces. These original goodies will probably seduce Rock and Metal fashion fans. Whereas the first model is decorated with metal, the other one is more shiny with the gems. These two kinds of necklaces exist in several different colors, and are sold $14,95 each.
Few weeks ago, I wrote a post about the Gperc concept in this post. First adapted on a Tom Launhardt guitar, I thought that this musical concept created by Frédéric Riedel was only intended to be used with electric guitars. My mistake because it has just been adapted on two acoustic guitars: a folk and a classic one. You can listen to the Gperc in the following video, or even try one if you are near the “Espace Broadway” in Paris on 28th of June. And if you enjoy it, you still have few days to participate in the project and preorder one from the crowdfunding site Ulule.

The founder of Le Niglo picks just presented on its blog the new “Natural” series. In this range, plectrums are inspired by the N4 and made in several natural exotic materials: black and marbled horn, two kinds of rosewood, and even in bone available soon. These are shaped with laser cutting machines and hand-finished by a French company having worked with the brand Dugain. The attack part was modified by the craftsman to get closer to the same model in bronze. This kind of plectrums brings interesting tones, with more volume than the first N4. The first copies will arrive in ten days to the retailers, and should be sold 13€ without cord, or 14€ with.
Created by Incident Technologies, the gTar project is a product which is maybe going to change guitar practicing. Having connected his iPhone to the dock, the user launches one of the compatibles apps with the device, and just have to play by following the notes displayed on the screen of the phone and on the fretboard. For the moment, three apps are made for the gTar, and the one which has the same name will be useful to play series of notes the most correctly and as fast as possible. When the song is finished, a scoreboard compares your skill with the one of your friends. Even if it reminds a Guitar Hero or a Misa Digital guitar, the brand highlights a real guitar feeling, with the technology and the fun stuff additionally. It could be a different way to learn guitar and experiment new tones, and even to color a stage during a show with these nice LEDs. The official release of the gTar is planned for this summer, but it is already available in pre-order for $399 in their store, in black and in white.
